Let me never forget....


Today...

... the way she curled into my arms, and smiled before drifting off...

... the way they laughed and shrieked, fighting battle after battle with friends, new and old...

... the tears that were fixed by a kiss and a hug...

... the bickering, the sharing, the whining, the loving....


We all know that tragedies happen, every day. But when one slaps you in the face, it's hard to NOT be grateful for all you have, and all you hold dear. To be living your life, just enjoying your kids, and to have one pass away so suddenly, is to have your whole world shattered. I am truly a wealthy woman, who has so much family to love, that loves me back. I pray to be so rich for my entire life...

My heart is with little Hannah's family, today and always, as it is with so many friends (IRL and online - you know who you are) who have lost a sweet child... She will remain in my mind, though I never knew her... And I will make a fervent prayer on Monday, as her family lays her to rest, that her spirit is truly free and happy...
